Pinterest is a rapid growing website. Started in December 2009, it has become the third largest social network in the United States. Its unique pinboard-style design attracted many designers to develop Pinterest Clone Scripts. Hundreds of Pinterest Clone sites were set up using these scripts. Some of them performed quite well in terms of traffic growth.
I have followed these scripts for a while and today I will show you 10 most popular Pinterest Clone Scripts and have a review one by one. If you happened using one of them or have another one for recommendation, don’t hesitate to drop a line in the comment.
